Outstanding documentary about an outstanding artist
30 September 2019 | by Red-125See all my reviews

Tintoretto (2919) was directed by Giuseppe Domingo Romano and narrated by Helena Bonham Carter. It's a brilliant documentary about Tintoretto (1518 - 1594), a brilliant 16th Century Venetian artist.

Tintoretto has special meaning for me because we saw a major exhibition of his work in El Prado in 2007. Tintoretto specialized in large canvases, and the exhibition extended over many rooms.

There were quite a few experts in the movie, who explained the many facets of the study of Tintoretto's work. Talking heads can be deadly in a documentary, but they aren't in this movie. The people are articulate and, of course, knowledgable, and director Romano shows us what they're talking about while they are explaining things to us.

Tintoretto was a prolific painter, and many of his works are on display at major U.S. museums--the Metropolitan, National Gallery, Cleveland, Chicago, Boston, etc. However, most of the works shown in the movie are in Venice--on the walls of churches and public buildings. It's wonderful to have access to these paintings via this documentary.

This movie doesn't appear to have had a wide distribution yet. In fact, mine is only the second review. It was shown at Rochester's great Little Theatre, but only with two screenings. It will clearly work better in a theater than on the small screen. However, if the small screen is your only option, take it.

This movie has a strong 7.7 IMDb rating. I rated it a 10. If you're an art enthusiast, this is a must-see. Even if you're not an art enthusiast, you will probably enjoy this colorful documentary. Warning--you may want to buy plane tickets to Venice after you see this film!
